Chelsea winger Eden Hazard hints that it is still his "dream" to play for Real Madrid despite the departure of Zinedine Zidane, but insists that he is content at Chelsea.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has admitted that it is still his "dream" to play for Real Madrid, despite the departure of manager Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane's presence was thought to be a major draw for Hazard, but the Frenchman stepped down from his role just days after guiding the club to a third successive Champions League trophy last season.

Hazard insists that Madrid has not lost any of its lustre as a result, though, hinting that he would like to join the club one day even if he is currently content at Chelsea.

"I'm fine at Chelsea and, for now, nobody has presented me with an offer," Hazard told beIN Sports.

"It is true that [Zidane] is special but Madrid makes everyone dream. With or without Zidane, Madrid's shirt is special. But I'm also doing well in blue so staying would not bother me."

Madrid are still thought to see Neymar as their number one transfer target this summer, but regard Hazard as a possible back-up option should they fail in their pursuit.
